Discover Government House, a true Canadian treasure! Built in 1891, this grand building first served as the official residence of the Lieutentant Governor of the North-West Territories. Restored to the period of Lieutenant Governor Amedee Forget, who was in office from 1898-1910, the museum gives you a glimpse of life at Government House at the turn of the 20th century.

  • Best to visit on an opening day. Very impress.
  • Beautiful lawns. Not always open to the public. No people anywhere. Could have an undisturbed picnic lunch here, kids would love the lawn slopes.
  • Beautiful gardens with plenty of space to go and sit and enjoy your lunch under the shade of a tree. My favourite escape from the office
  • Really good place for the seat of Government. Directly on the river, easily approachable by boat in the night, easily scalable walls and no visible guards. A+ would besiege again.
  • Government House is open a couple of times during the year to the public. When it is open, take hold of the opportunity to view it. It is amazing.
